Description: Starting in the old seaport town of Port Maria, loop through countryside to the farming community of Islington. This is where the Trail begins. The (approx. 5 mile) Trail is maintained by the bike club - Single Track Jamaica – and its principal purpose is to provide these extreme sports enthusiasts an amazing place to hone their skills. This is what they have to say about their trails: “trails are living, breathing things. Most have been around hundreds of years as generations of Jamaicans have used them to walk within and between communities. They are literally the arteries of rural Jamaica…” The quiet is pronounced, the greenery and trees profuse. There are astounding views, beautiful water for swimming, a pristine Black Sand Beach, Kwamen Falls, it is a coastline hike that let’s you wander where the wifi is irrelevant. There is no better tonic than a good long walk in nature.
